Lady Rams get win in Carlsbad

The Portales Lady Ram basketball team opened their 2006-07 season with a 47-41 win Tuesday night at Carlsbad.

The Portales girls led 12-8 after the first quarter, and took a 23-17 advantage into the half. Senior Kaycee Quick led Portales with 24 points.

“We played okay,” Lady Ram head coach Brenda Gomez said. “I expected some things to go better, but at the same time, I was surprised that some things went as well as they did. It’s very early, and I expect things to go well this season, but it may take us awhile to get there.”

The Lady Rams (1-0) host Clovis Friday, Dec. 1 before heading to the annual Rio Rancho tournament in Albuquerque Dec. 7 through Dec. 9.
